  • People can develop new allergies at any age. If you're getting a lot of rain, it could be from mold.

    If she's not getting relief from otc meds, I'd schedule her up with an allergist.

  • Even people, like me with no allergies, are sensitive when the mold count goes too high. She will be fine most years and then it will be a bad year.

  • try kids Claritin and see if it makes a difference. the weather can cause new mold and pollen to blow around so he could be right. Or it's a cold but it does sound like allergies.
